Wood & Lee lawyers are frequently called upon to assist with intellectual property transfers and monetisation. We have the experience necessary to ensure that issues in traditional purchases and sales (whether alone or as part of a larger acquisition) are thoroughly vetted and properly covered, including issues related to chain-of-title, joint ownership, infringement and liens.
Our lawyers have the necessary business, industry and legal understanding to provide valuable counsel on how best to structure the transaction with the specific assets and economic environment in mind, whether as a securitisation, a royalty sale, or a secured loan. Our lawyers handle the financing and securitisation of intellectual property assets ranging from pharmaceuticals to movies. Our lawyers represent borrowers, lenders and insurers. We also can help clients find creative solutions to financing concerns, and can structure licensing, joint venture, and other relationships in the place of or in addition to secured financing.
- We handle all types of agreements and ventures, including joint venture and strategic partner relationships; distribution, sales, co-marketing and co-promotion agreements; supply and manufacturing agreements; Internet and multimedia license agreements; IT and business process outsourcing agreements; and confidentiality and material transfer agreements.
- We possess significant experience developing global IP protection and technology commercialisation strategies for a strong international client base.
- We are supported by a recognised IP litigation team with extensive experience handling patent issues underlying IP transactions.
